lyrics

Meanwhile Down In Babylon

You got me quartered in hut one
You march your guard dogs on the hour
You want me living hand to mouth
But watch your back cos I’ll break out

And though your search lights point me out
And though your barbed wire pins me down
One day parade will find me gone
And I’ll be down in Babylon

So slowly slowly enemy
You’ll feel the nights draw in
And did you know what happens next time?
I’ll send you a postcard from down in Babylon

And now my works fetch record sums
And I sleep soundly diagonally
Across the bed where you once lay
And I’ll be damned, I’ll soldier on

So hold your fire and check your charge
Your halftrack heroes are gone
And I won’t hear you when you’re screaming
I’ll write to you from back in Babylon
